The Rantin’ & Ravin’ Show 5-28-2013

I was just on the Rantin’ & Ravin’ Show discussing the Xbox One Reveal!

The Rantin’ & Ravin’ Show is the live internet radio show for the Sports Rants website. Typically, the show is dedicated to Sports talk, but this week the host decided to have me on to discuss the console and how it will impact sports fans. I touched on the integration of the console with your live TV and sports, the NFL agreement, and tracking your fantasy team. Unfortunately, it was a short segment so there was NO WAY we could cover everything. But to catch up on what all went down, here’s my write up and here’s IGN’s console comparison.

Here’s to hoping for several more appearances!

T.A.O. of Destiny – Law of the Jungle Trailer

For awhile now, the gaming community has been anticipating the newest project from Bungie. In a previous announcement, we learned that their new project, Destiny, is to be something massive and immersive.

Not only are you certain that this game will be amazing, but it will be so amazing that it will warrant additional games to be made after it and that these additional iterations of the game will be continue to be so alluring that the franchise will persist for a full decade! Ok Bungie, show me what you’ve got! Continue reading T.A.O. of Destiny – Law of the Jungle Trailer

Pirates of Dark Water

Pirates of Dark Water:

A quick look at the True Golden Age of Pirates trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4

The term “Golden Age” conjures up a very specific set of imagery regardless of which Golden Age it refers to.  Innovation, progress, wealth, hope or in one word: Prosperity.  When I hear that phrase I see the height of Rome, men in togas bringing civilization to the world. But what is a Golden Age to someone whose prosperity is based on plunder?  What is a golden age to a pirate and more importantly, when?  Ubisoft answers that question with the very first words in its latest trailer for Assassins Creed 4.
